Monday, March 23, 2020


First, I just want to say that our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this global pandemic. We extend our heartfelt wishes to anyone who is sick for their full recovery. As much as this pandemic tries to bring morale down, we are inspired every day by selfless healthcare workers and first responders.

Gov. Tom Wolf closed all non-life-sustaining businesses in Pennsylvania due to COVID-19.  We are exempt and we will continue to ship high-quality equipment, components, and provide services in support of our customer’s efforts to supply the nation with life-sustaining food and medicine.   

Our Safe Workplace Plan

We want to maintain a safe workplace and adopt practices to protect the health of our employees, customers, visitors, and others.  We have asked all of our employees to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace.  

  > Employees are encouraged to follow CDC and WHO guidelines like staying home when they are sick, washing their hands frequently, and using sanitizers in high touch areas.
  > We are deep cleaning the buildings every Friday evening as employees go home.  We support natural disinfecting by keeping the buildings closed from Friday evening until Monday morning.

  > We are taking preventative actions like workplace social distancing through the limiting of third party facility access, limiting inter-facility employee contact, and many employees are working from home.
  > Employees are encouraged to use telephone and video conferencing instead of face-to-face meetings as much as possible.

Service and Support

While this is an ever-evolving situation, currently we anticipate no interruptions to our customer service, support, and shipments as part of the critical infrastructure industry.  As the situation changes, we will keep you informed.  Thank you for trusting us with your business.  We will work together in these challenging circumstances to best serve your customers.

Good News! ABC has Reduced Shipping Lead Times
Thursday, October 31, 2019

Our industry has been busy the past couple of years. ABC has seen record-breaking orders due to high demand for our products. At the same time, unemployment rates have plunged, making it challenging to hire machinists and welders. These trends pushed ABC’s shipment lead times beyond what we and our customers want.

ABC has implemented several programs to address this. These are bearing fruit. For instance, since July we have been quoting 3” – 5” heat exchangers and 1-round filter housings at seven-to-nine weeks lead time. We’ve also reduced lead times for other products by several weeks.

Although we are hiring critical positions, our strategy has not been to simply hire a lot more people. This would raise costs and put pressure on pricing. Rather, we are attacking the issue by increasing throughput via manufacturing efficiencies that also yield improved quality and employee satisfaction.

You can be assured that our entire organization is working for you to reduce lead times while maintaining the high quality you have come to rely on from ABC.
